Clermont Woman’s Club president, Sylvia Barto, presented a check to Carmen Cullen-Batt, executive director of the Education Foundation, in support of Take Stock In Children. The check was presented at the annual Lake/Sumter TSIC Corporate Spelling Bee fund-raising event at Lake Receptions, Mt. Dora. Take Stock in Children was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization in Florida that provides a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education. They offer students college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life. The comprehensive services start in middle school, continue through high school and include their transition into college. Ollie Emory and Sylvia Barto, both members of Clermont Woman’s Club, are mentors.

Our heartfelt THANKS to our GFWC-Florida District 7 Director Mary Blake (middle), who graciously performed the installation of the new elected Officers for the club year 2014-2016 of the Clermont Woman’s Club.  Lynn Lupoli (right) who now holds the title of Past President is more than tickled pink to pass on the crown to our new President Sylvia Barto (left).

Lynn and her husband Ed have done so much for our club, and we’re very grateful and truly appreciate all their time and efforts to make things possible. We are looking forward to working together with Sylvia on making another 2 years of the Clermont Woman’s Club success in making a difference in our community.
